The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back
The crew-cut young man at the microphone of a smoke-filled night club seen on the cover of THE BUTTON-DOWN MIND STRIKES BACK may not be how most people think of Bob Newhart, but years before he became a TV sitcom star, he was a stand-up comic. And a very popular one at that; Newhart's first comedy album was a No.1 hit, as was this fine follow-up. Offering deadpan takes on such topics as suicidal psychology, cheap airlines, monkeys on typewriters and retirement, the Warner Bros. set continues to provide plenty of laughs. Recorded at San Francisco's hungry i club and Freddie's in Minneapolis, THE BUTTON-DOWN MIND STRIKES BACK earned “the most celebrated new comedian since Attila” a Best Comedy Performance-Spoken Word Grammy.
